senator kerry to the committee. we look forward to talking to you then as well. i think there are several takeaways here that are incredibly important. one is that we have to look at the totality of the threat environment versus just looking for a specific credible threat when we are thinking about the protection of our foreign service personnel and we are moving in that direct. the other thing is that the government has clear lines of authorities and responsibility for security matters instead of silos looking more in a horizontal nature and i understand that that is under way. a lot has been said about resources here. secretary gates used to famously argue that there are more people in military bands than in the entire military force. it seems to me we can protect our diplomats who serve on the front lines and i am concerned when the a.r.b. says that the state department has been engaged for years and a struggle to obtain the resources necessary to carry out its work and that has conditioned the thinking of some in the state department that it is imperative for the state department to b
of thoughts about what more we can and should do given this new reality we face. >> thank you. senator kerry >> thank you. -- senator. >> thank you. you have always spoken out forcefully where required. this is maybe the last time you come before us as secretary. i want to thank you for your advocacy on behalf of women around the globe. you will be sorely missed. i hope not for too long. as you have said, you were heartbroken by those losses in benghazi. we saw your face many times today, as well. you were heartbroken personally and professionally. rather than 0.2 others for their deficiencies, you stepped up and convened an accountability to review board to look into this in detail. you asked them to tell it the way they saw it. i want to give you my take on that. i want to go to something the senator said which i agree with. the first report we got from the intelligence community a week or so after was very confusing. it was not helpful to us. all of us felt that way. i want to speak for my self. the difference between that meeting and the meeting we had with those cochairs could not have
praised. while senator kerry has my full confidence, you will be deeply missed. you said in your opening statement, you're determined to leave the state department and our country safer, stronger and more secure and in my view because of your leadership, they are. today we continue the consideration of the advisory review board which found that security was quote grossly inadequate to deal with the attack on benghazi. the mistakes that were made are simply unacceptable. i'm pleased that the state department has gun to promptly implement the board's recommendations thanks to your leadership. i know you agree the massive security failures such as those witnessed in benghazi that cost the lives of four brave americans, simply cannot happen again. i look forward to working with my colleagues on this committee in a searching review of the resources needed and the state department structure to ensure that we do better to protect diplomats and other americans who put their lives at risk each and every day. as chairman of the africa subcommittee, i'm pleased you have drawn for the committee in y
satellite corp. 2013] >> senator john kerry has been nominated to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state during his senate confirmation hearing is tomorrow at 10 a.m. eastern. we will have live coverage of the senate foreign relations committee here on c-span. >> what is the best training for a policeman? >> the best training you can get is to become a really good police officer and find out what is all about. you learn how to develop sources, use intelligence information, you learn how to leverage relationships. that is the key. people in the community trust you. they will tell you things that are happening that are not yet crimes. that way you can intervene. they will tell you how to go about doing that. i learned the most from that. >> from high school dropout to a single mother to that d.c. police chief, more with katcathy lanier. >> today the senate passed a bill that extends the debt ceiling, allowing the surgery department to borrow more money. it also requires congress to pass a budget and will withhold numbers pay intel they do so. harry reid says that he seeks to pass
of state, john kerry, and chuck hagel, which he has gone a lot of flak for it, to the secretary of defense? >> those are promising choices. john kerry may finally liberate himself with a push from chuck a goal. they are going to have to take on the military-industrial complex and reduce those mass of weapons systems that were designed for a soviet-peristyle hostility like the f-22 and nuclear subs. they're going have to cut the military budget down from its $800 billion, and get out of afghanistan and iraq. and whether they have the chemistry and the political fortitude to do so, it remains to be seen. but i think they are a better choice than their predecessors. i think john kerry will be better than hillary clinton, who had to be macho all the time. and panetta, chuck hagel will be better than panetta, who was kind of a fill in. and spent weekends back in california where he really wants to retire. there is a little promise there. but again, it requires the resurgence of mass demonstrations in washington this spring to develop a convergent policy from the militarization of foreign-policy
kerry getting ready -- john kerry is the chairman still of the foreign relations committee in the senate but he's recusing himself. he won't even be there. i think he's gearing up for his own confirmation hearing but bob menendez, he's going to chair these hearings. >> that's right. and this is an odd way for her to go out. but, yes, she's leaving this week. >> let's talk a little bit about you. today's your first day on cnn. about a month ago we saw you on another network. but what have you been doing the last month gearing up for this major new challenge in your life? >> a lot of gearing up, a lot of time with my children, jack and alice. and also, i have this new book that i wrote about afghanistan. >> best seller, i must say. >> it is a bestseller. >> "the outpost ", right there. >> one of the staff sergeants in that book, it was announced that president obama is going to award him the medal of honor in february. so i've been -- >> he's a central character in the book. >> he's a big character in the book and i've been preparing for that. we're going to have a party with him. i've bee
senator clinton will testify before the senate with the kerry confirmation coming right behind. there will be a lot of focus on the state department and the systems and the internal accountabilities and, it feels to me, like a lot of this was because of just a state department that is stovepiped. it is almost full of sclerosis and unable to attend to the issues of security and make decisions that need to be made in this regard. i think you know --. bill: but with that, to that regard, senator. >> okay. bill: there seems to be this constant theme about folks in washington wanting to know whether or not she was aware on the decision-making as to whether or not adequate security was in place in benghazi. >> right. bill: is that not the heart of this? >> i don't think there is any question she will be asked that especially with some of the cables we've all known about from chris stevens and some of the concerns and the fact, you know, the first thing that people up here want to talk about, bill, is money. that is the very first thing that came out of the arb. that was really disurg
is respected on both sides of the aisle. while your likely successor senator kerry has my full confidence, you will be deeply missed. you've made our country safer, stronger, and in more secure and in my view because of your leadership, you are. the review board found that security was grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place in benghazi in september. the mistakes that were made are simply unacceptable and i am pleased that the state department has begun to promptly implement the board's recommendation, thanks to your leadership. i know that you agree that the massive security detail that cost the lives of four brave americans simply cannot happen again and i look forward to working with my colleagues on this committee in a searching review of the resources needed and the state department structure to ensure that we do better to protect our diplomats and other americans that put their lives at risk each and every day. as chairman of the african subcommittee, i am pleased that you have drawn for this committee in your testimony the links between this tragic incident in benghaz
